2013 National Film Registry

Honestly I used to be must more on top of this. Luckily the thought just ‘popped’ into my head and I decided to venture over to the Library of Congress website to see if the 2013 list has come out. Sure enough, it has! Announced and posted yesterday, these 25 films were selected “as works of great cultural, historic or aesthetic significance to the nation’s cinematic heritage.” This annual honor means that the films “will be preserved as cinematic treasures for generations to come” (All images courtesy of the Library of Congress):

  • Bless Their Little Hearts (1984)
